Then comes a baby… Melissa and Kory + 1

First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes a puppy, (why has this not been added in the song yet) then comes a baby in a baby carriage. One of my favorite couples. I’ve seen their story and their family grow from the beginning, and that’s one of my FAVORITE things about my job. To look […]

It sits right at the front of the Nelson Atkins Museum and is surrounded with Kansas City’s finest. With rows of perfect floral design, and every color of flower and green you can imagine. […]

Balloon fights with Amy & Mark + beloved

Amy and her continuous adorable laughter + Mark with his “kindergarten grin” as Amy would say it. These two have nothing less than pure fun in their relationship. I say Amy wins at their balloon fight. Just because she has longer hair and it shows more static means very little in terms of who conquers […]
